    I guess Shadowman is ending.

    I'm also curious about the change in the publishing line. Are they cancelling books to relaunch them later or are these books replacing the old product?

    Whatever the case, I'm definitely interested in Dr. Mirage and The Delinquents, the latter mostly for Kano and Asmus. FVL's not bad either.

    Looking forward to All-New Ultimates, Flash Gordon and Doctor Mirage.

    Seems kinda odd that that theyd cancel Shadowman when Milligan has just come aboard. Assuming that it is Shadowman thats being cancelled.

    Still, all this stuff sounds great. Armor Hunters, Kindt on Rai, a Dr Mirage book and A&A meet Q&W? Sign me up!

    For anyone interested, Newsarama has an interview that clears up a few things.

    Shadowman is NOT ending and Harbinger will continue after the Armor Hunters mini ends.

    Still not 100% clear though.

    Yay for Rai


    Nay for A&A getting into another crossover right after getting mixed up with Bloodshot.

    I'm very excited for Rai simply for the fact that Clayton Crain is doing the interiors. Looking at his covers has been some of my favorite things about Valiant.

    I'll definitely give Dr. Mirage a shot.

    I'm very excited about Armor Hunters and want to see how it involves the rest of the Valiant U.

    I actually think that I am going to drop A&A and Q&W after this month. I have read all their issues up to now, but it just isn't for me.

    This sounds like something I would enjoy. I'm mainly a marvel reader but I've been thinking of reading some new titles after enjoying some of Darkhorses new stuff.

    Dr.Mirage looks good, Harbinger sounds good as an X-men fan, and I like event titles. So, I'll think on it.

    This is exciting news, more so cause the first post assumed Shadowman would end and I was all "nothing in that article hinted at that to me at all". Confirmed it's not ending, good.

    The Rai art looks amazing. So in 4001 the island of Japan is a thriving future city and at least part of the North American continent is not based on the current Eternal Warrior arc.
    Doctor Mirage....just mentioning Hwen in the description pleases me that his character is not forgotten.
    The Delinquents....is a mini-series team up?
    Armor Wars which we already knew was coming.

    So things look very, very interesting for VALIANT in 2014!!!

    Awesome art on Rai! In general this looks very promising.

    I've been a big supporter of the Valiant re-launch but overall this seems like a mistake. Constantly re-launching books with cross-overs and new #1s is what burned me out on Marvel years ago. Maybe Valiant would be better off focusing on a core 5 or 6 books rather than insisting on 8 or 10 if the market can't support it? I am pumped for the new Rai series though.

    Unless Rai is taking Bloodshot's place in the line-up, I expect it to be relaunched as something else after Armor Hunters.

    I do think they may have had a good opportunity to just rotate titles out of the line-up rather than expanding the way they are.
